I’ve started to convert some of my Gen 3 content to Genesis and in the process needed to create some Material presets for the Greco Roman Chiton for Steph 3.

When creating the preset I’ve noticed that the dialogue box includes the item and also something called Pins.

Can anyone explain to me what Pins are and what they are used for?

thanks

Pen

What option are you choosing when you go to save the mat preset & what file format are you saving it as?

Hi Matty,

I’m saving from the content library…

I click on the plus symbol down the bottom

I choose Materials preset…

The save dialogue comes up and I choose a name and hit save…

This time with something different I didn’t get pins only the parts of the object…the item I got it with was the GrecoRoman Chiton.

The preset works I just wondered what the pins were as I haven’t seen it before…

Don’t worry I just worked it out…pins are one of the groups on the surface tab.
